ROCKSTAR Music Review: AR Rahman is a rockstar
Cineswami had anointed Vishal-Shekhar’s RA.One album as the soundtrack of the year. It pales in comparison to Rahman’s tunes for Rockstar
“I hear music when I close my eyes. When I open my eyes the music does not go away. I often can’t follow the words that people speak, but I get the music of their soul. It’s good that way, because words can lie but music cannot. Pleasant or disturbing, music is always the truth.” These profound words echoing a Sufi saying can be found on the album inlay of the Rockstar CD. The words could very well be a reflection of the musical mind of India’s greatest living composer AR Rahman, the creator of the Rockstar soundtrack. Ranbir Kapoor may be the star of the film and Imtiaz ‘Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal’ Ali, the creator, but Rahman is the driving force of this musical. Not so long ago, Cineswami had anointed Vishal-Shekhar’s RA.One album as the soundtrack of the year. Though undeniably good, it pales in comparison to Rahman’s tunes for Rockstar. This masterpiece of an album greatly benefits from some truly inspired lyrical poesy by Irshad Kamil. Mohit Chauhan has been chosen as Ranbir’s voice for the album and he delivers in spades.

ROCKSTAR: Is this the story of Ranbir Kapoor’s new film?
Imtiaz Ali’s musical hits the theatres this Friday and we heard about the story from someone in the know. Thus, in keeping with our tradition of sharing all the goss and buzz that we chance upon, here’s what we think is the story of Rockstar
This is the story of Janardhan Jakhar, a boy-next-door who harbours the ambition of being a rockstar a la his idol, Jim Morrison. He is from a humble background, but that doesn’t stop him from chasing his dream of making it big in the musical world. Thanks to his ignorance and silly attitudes, all he gets is ridicule and humiliation from everyone. Click here to read more

Hordes of AR Rahman fans gathered to watch him perform live and the music man, along with leads Ranbir and newbie Nargis Fakhri, made the evening a memorable one. Click here to read more
Ranbir Kapoor all set for a live performance!
For the first time, the self-confessed shy actor will set foot on stage for a concert to promote his latest film Rockstar
While most actors love to entertain a live audience with their dance and drama, hottie Ranbir Kapoor has refrained from it. Some say it is his shy nature. Some say the actor likes to connect with his fans through the movies and not go on public platforms. That’s one of the reasons he isn’t a part of any of the social networking sites. Anyway, a while back there were stories of the young Kapoor going on a worldwide tour with leading ladies Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone, but it just remained rumours. Finally, after five years in the film industry, for the first time, Ranbir will set foot on stage in front of a live audience for a gig promoting Rockstar. Click here to read more
